Epic Laundry

Laundry-based percussion sounds for Kontakt 2 /3 & Halion 3.5

Deep in the heart of the darkest basement lies a hidden world of sound, undreamed of by mortal men!  Only there, past cobwebs and junk that you haven’t seen since the 8th grade picnic, will you find Epic Laundry.  Experience the percussive power of a washer, dryer, and other odds and ends that were laying around the area when I recorded them.

Lest you wonder how these things could possibly be used to make worthwhile music, listen…

All instruments included in Epic Laundry.
Played in Kontakt 3, external reverb added.

.. surprised? So was I.

Even more surprising was the versatility of the recordings once I started manipulating them in Kontakt. Acoustic percussion is only the beginning of this set. Granular synthesis and timestretching turn detergent bottles into delicate guitar-like sounds, and transform rubber mallet strikes on a washbasin into a quirky piano. Further manipulation of the source material yielded LaunDrones, evocative pads to layer under the percussive assault.  All of the instruments in the set are constructed with musicality and playability in mind.  Lots of round robin hits and control over the sound make this a fun library to play with!
